Beautiful beaches in Dutch Domburg

Domburg is a small beach town located in the south of The Netherlands, in the province Zeeland. You might not have heard of Zeeland, but you probably have heard of New Zealand which actually thanks its name to this Dutch province. Ever since I was a little girl I anually paid a visit to this lovely beach getaway. You can imagine I was more than excited to go back this year!

Unique to the area: poles on the beach
Domburg has beautiful, big and endless beaches which are, just like the other beaches in the area Walcheren, clearly distinguishable from other (Dutch) beaches by the poles on the beach.The function of these poles is to make sure the current doesn’t get too strong, otherwise the beach would slowly disappear and eventually the dunes would be eaten up by the ocean as well. And for Travel Bloggers like me they are act like pretty photogenic props 😉
Best beaches of The Netherlands
Next to these poles the beaches in Domburg are, in my (very biased) opinion the most beautiful beaches in The Netherlands. The beaches seem endless, there’s hardly anyone there (if you go far enough) and the water is refreshingly cold. If you’re going with little kiddies they will have the time of their lives as you can find some beautiful little seashells on the shores. I spent many hours of my childhood collecting shells together with my cousin, and we were always so happy when we found a ‘zeeboontje’ (sea bean).

If you love going for long walks or endless bike rides then Domburg is also the place to be. You can either cycle through the dunes to one of the neighboring villages and stop for a cup of coffee before you cycle back, or you can walk on the beach to one of the same neighboring villages. If you decide to go left (when facing the beach) don’t be surprised if you all of the sudden come across a lot of naked butts because there are also a few nude beaches in the area 😉

My favorite spots in Domburg
If I have convinced you to pay a visit to Domburg then you also shouldn’t miss out on the following spots:

– Go for a short walk uphill on the Hoge Hill (High Hill) from where you’ll have an amazing panoramic view over the whole area. This place is also a must-go spot for the sunset lovers amongst us.
– Have dinner at El Fuego, where you can order some of the most finger licking Mexican dishes in the area.
– Grab a cup of coffee and a yummie sandwich at the Bier en Melksalon (beer and milk saloon)
– Finish your day with a mouthwatering scoop of ice cream at De IJsvogel (the ice bird).
Have fun in Domburg! 🙂

    If you told me this was France I would’ve believed it as well! This is beautiful! Definitely making my way South when back in Amsterdam…

    Sounds like a great place! Never been in Domburg before, but with the combination of food places (I love food) will be a good day!

  • Smile, it's Friday!
But that's not the reason I'm smiling from ear to ear in this photo. The reason was being in the outback and finally seeing Uluru! This place was high up in my top 5 of destinations I wanted to visit soooo badly. The other four are Fiji, Sri Lanka, The Philippines and the Aussie East Coast from Brisbane up to Darwin.

  • Isn’t this place just gorge-ous? - pun intended 😆
Only a stone’s throw away from @wayoutbackaus’s campsite you’ll find the Glen Helen Gorge. It’s the ultimate spot to cool off and relax after a day of hiking and exploring the outback!

  • Ehhh, I thought I was in the desert?🌵🐪
When I think of the desert I think of loads of sand, a burning sun and not much greenery. Well, @wayoutbackaus showed me there’s much more! This little oasis is found in the heart of Kings Canyon and is the perfect spot to take a well deserved break from your hike in the heat :)
What comes to mind first when you think of the desert? ∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘

On day two @wayoutbackaus took me to Kata Tjuta to go on the Valley of the Winds walk. During this walk you’ll wander between the domes and are treated to the most stunning views. Take this one for instance. In love with the outback 😍.

  • It is so good to finally meet you, Uluru! ∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘
Ever since I came to Australia I’ve been dreaming of going to the Red Centre to visit the magical Uluru. Thanks to @wayoutbackaus this dream came true - and the adventure has only just begun. The next five days @wayoutbackaus will show me the hidden treasures and most beautiful spots of the Australian Outback. Stay tuned as I’ll take you with me on my Instagram Stories whenever I can find some phone reception ;).

  • So much ♥ for you, Brisbane!
After having lived in Brissy for nearly 4 months it's time to say goodbye. But ohhh, how I'll miss this place. I'll miss the stunning sunsets in Kangaroo Point, I'll miss the friendly faces at my favorite coffee place, I'll miss the man-made beach where I spent many hours worshipping the sun, I'll miss the people I met and the friends I made, but above all I'll miss working at @breezelodge. Meeting travelers from all over the globe plus having the best boss and colleagues a girl could wish for made me go to work with a huge smile on my face day after day. Except for those early morning shifts maybe ;) Brisbane, it was my pleasure and hopefully one day I'll be back! .
